Cyberpunk 2077 developer CD Projekt Red has released the second big patch of 2021 for the consoles and PC version of the game today. The patch 1.2 brings hundreds of fixes for the game on all platforms, and you can expect a 40GB download on Xbox and a 35GV download on PC.
The release notes are pretty much overwhelming with a massive list of bug fixes and minor gameplay changes, including an increased spawn radius for police forces. This should be a welcome change as many players complained about NCPD units popping up from nowhere when you commit a crime in the game, though what Cyberpunk 2077 still needs is an overhauled AI system for police forces, pedestrians, and other NPCs.
Patch 1.2 for Cyberpunk 2077 is now live on PC and consoles! A version for Stadia will follow later this week.

The release notes also mention “Various UI performance and stability improvements,” which is another area where Cyberpunk 2077 definitely disappointed. The game performed so badly on base Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles that Sony actually pulled it from its PlayStation Store, and it remains to be seen if this massive patch will be enough for Sony to reverse its decision.
Despite its various issues, Cyberpunk 2077 was one of the best-selling games of 2020 and many reviews (ours included) did see a very promising underneath the bugs. In a post-launch roadmap published back in January, CD Projekt Red promised multiple updates and improvements for Cyberpunk 2077 throughout the year as well as free DLCs, though we don’t have more details yet. A next-gen version of Cyberpunk 2077 for Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 consoles is also expected for later this year.
